Sassy Spring Look

As we head into spring I’m showing y’all one more look on these pretty pink stairs! This berry dress from LOFT was a steal on sale and is a dress that can really be worn every season! ou can take this from fall/winter with booties and tights and summer/spring paired with a denim jacket and wedges or maybe some pastel accessories for spring! Kind of like you see here I paired this dress with the same Halogen heels from Nordstrom Rack and crossbody bag from LC Lauren Conrad.

I love dresses like this that are so easy to change up and pair with different things as well as the dress itself is so comfortable but slightly structured and I LOVE that! The material is super comfortable and light weight but looks more expensive than it is, which i love!

I can’t wait to share more spring looks with y’all! Get ready for swimwear and the t-shirt will be coming back soon too! That seems to be a favorite around here!

Spring Time Embroidery

Happy Monday Friends!

I’m totally ready for spring time and sunshine, anyone else?! I’ve been picking up some spring pieces lately and Old Navy and Stein Mart have had some great steals recently! These jeans are my new favorites y’all! They are high waisted, distressed, and sculpt how can I resist?! These are the best jeans and are of course from Old Navy! The tunic top is from Stein Mart and such a steal for $18 and I love the embroidery detail and the color! Paired with sandals from last year and Loft aviators on sale! This is my ideal spring look, it’s super comfy and easy on the go!

We are busy wedding planning and scheduling trip for the summer and I couldn’t be happier for beach days and trips! What is your favorite part about spring/summer?!

L-O-V-E & Valentines

Happy almost Valentine’s Day!

This is another super fun and Valentine’s inspired look for y’all! I grabbed this LOVE sweater from Old Navy during Christmas time funny enough and saved it for this month because it was a perfect fit! I paired it with my favorite high waisted shorts from Loft, pink Pumas from TJ Maxx and pink Michael Kors crossbody! I love a great sporty look and this one is so fun and kind of reminds me of old school jock sweaters, does anyone else love the movie Grease?! Anyway this is a great look if you are doing something casual tomorrow or maybe going shopping or brunch this weekend!

Travis and I have never been huge on the holiday, we don’t need a holiday to show how much we love each other but that’s just us. We actually have never had a good Valentine’s Day anyways and there is to much pressure on this holiday as it is. This year we are keeping it super low key, going out to our favorite BBQ spot and not worrying about pre-fixed menus, again that’s just us, to each his own.

To be honest I just love the pink and red and all the half off candy the day after Valentine’s Day, anyone else? Probably the best park about Valentine’s Day especially when I was younger and single was running to Target the day after Valentine’s and buying myself flowers and chocolate, buying myself a gift! LOL! It’s so important to love yourself first! Self love is key, don’t let a holiday change your mind or think that you have to be with someone, just saying.

Anyways enough of my rambling about this holiday! We are headed home this weekend for a special collaboration as well as tons of wedding planning! I will be taking you all along on IG and sharing more here on the blog when we get back! For now let me know what you have planned for tomorrow, or what outfit you’ll be sporting!

Give Me All The Hearts

Happy Wednesday Lovelies!

Sorry for the hiatus in January, but I’m back and so excited to share my first Valentine’s look with y’all! This is probably one of my favorite looks to date! You all know I love a good graphic t-shirt and this conversation heart one from Nordstrom is super soft and comfy! I paired it with other pieces I already had in my closet. The skirt is from Loft, I actually showed you a different way to wear it last Valentine’s Day along with velvet Nine West pumps and a fun pink Michael Kors bag! This look is just so fun and festive without being serious and could be great for spring too! Again everything you see was on sale!

It’s becoming more important to me to purchase key pieces to change a look or that I can already wear with other pieces I have in my closet! This T-shirt I believe was $34 but the rest of the look I already had, but it changed the look enough that I had a whole different outfit! Just like everyone else I love a great deal and changing up my closet!

What is your go to Valentine’s Day look? Do you like more casual or are you more of a full glam kind of girl? Let me know in the comments!!

Our Cruise on The Disney Dream

Sorry this post isn’t going up until Friday this week y’all. We have been super busy between traveling, wedding planning, my photography and getting ready for the holidays life is super overwhelming…in a great way! Anyway, a few weeks ago I embarked on my first cruise EVER! Call me crazy but the movie Titanic stuck with me ok, I tend to over think things, lol!

I was the photographer for Chris and Mer’s wedding that was taking place on The Disney Dream and Travis was in the wedding so therefore we were going on this cruise. Travis and I have never taken a cruise together and me never so we were in for an adventure.

As a first time cruise goer I didn’t have any problem with sea sickness or anything like that (thank goodness) and loved all the beautiful parts of the ship, especially for the wedding photos! So many great spots! The food was amazing everyday and the customer service in general was on point, it is Disney after all.

If you have never been on a cruise and are preparing to go soon I would keep a few things in mind. Do your research, if you are stopping anywhere on your trip see where you’re docking has to offer; excursions, shops, food. Also take everything into account; as in gratuities, extra drinks, souvenirs ex, make sure you know exactly what you are planning on spending when you get on the ship. It will take all the stress off you later if you plan ahead! Above all else have a blast! Order the extra dessert, lounge by the pool and attend all the shows, we had a great time and can’t wait to plan our next trip!

Below are just a few highlights from our trip! We loved the towel animals every night, all the yummy treats, and really enjoyed Castaway Cay!

Do you have any trips planned that are coming up? I would love to hear about where you’re traveling to!

Classic Fall Style with Loft

Happy Wednesday lovelies!

I have another fall look for y’all! This one reminds me of horse back riding with the high neck and tie detail on the top and the blazer with chic elbow pads this look has all the details! This entire look is from Loft minus the shoes! These leggings are amazing, super comfy but also look more like pants than leggings, a big plus for the office! Again the top has fabulous details and can be worn with jeans for a more casual look. The blazer is a staple piece to have in your closet and this one is perfect especially for this Florida weather! It’s more of a sweater material but has the structure of a heavier jacket along with great details again would be great with jeans or even a skirt.

These pieces are great investment pieces and great mix and match items which are worth every penny. For me personally I tend to sway more towards classic timeless pieces and only purchase a few trendy pieces because the classic pieces will always be in style and a better idea to invest in.

What are your must have pieces in your closet? What do you invest in? Let me know!

Yearly Daytona Beach Trip

Happy October everyone! Can anyone else not believe that it’s like three months until the holidays?! Where did time ago? Anyways Travis and I took our now annual trip to Daytona Beach this past weekend and had a blast as always. We have stayed at the Hyatt Place Daytona Beach Shores for 3 years now and don’t plan on stopping! It’s a close drive but we are definitely the happiest close to the water, it’s the Sarasota girl in me growing up ten minutes from the beach!

We got to the hotel Friday after work in time to watch the sunset and enjoy some relaxation and dinner! I’m always super casual driving to the beach so this was my travel look if you will.

Of course we spent most of our time on the beach and at the pool! I brought a few suits from Loft to sport on the beach and love this one! It was $15 on clearance and the color was perfect and goes perfect with that big blue sky!

Saturday night we hit one of our favorite spots to eat, Ocean Deck. This is one of our favorite spots super casual and on the beach but I love wearing a good sun dress. This dress is from Forever 21+ I grabbed this on sale as well for $13 its super cute and I plan on packing it for our cruise too!

Sunday Funday was for the beach and we grabbed some shots of this other Loft suit with a little more sass! This suit is out of my comfort zone but going out of your comfort zone is good for you, right?!

Love Loft - Try On Session

Hey everyone!

Hope you’re having a great week thus far! Last week I shared a little bit about my experience with Loft at the Altamonte Mall but I wanted to go a little more in depth and share some looks from my try on session!

Again I had the pleasure of working with some amazing girls at Loft and we all tag teamed and picked out some looks for me to try. First off best part about this is when others pick your clothes, they choose something you might not ever try and might love if you did try them on! These girls chose several pieces I would never try and I loved every look I tried on at my try on session! I love Loft as a whole, the quality of the clothes, and especially how their clothing is for the everyday woman! I can take all my Loft pieces from day to night, dress up, dress down, that is what I love to have in my closet!

Another thing I really love about Loft is they just started carrying plus sizes so everyone can find the size best for them and not sacrifice style, so important! Another plus Loft almost always has a sale, I always score major deals at Loft and these are pieces I constantly wear!

Definitley check out Loft for some fun new fall pieces that have a ton of great things right now! A few looks from my try on session are below for y’all to check out along with the girls that put together those looks for me! Make sure to check them out!



Loft & Life Chats

We are half way through the week friends, yay!

This week is a super busy one for me full of events and fun things! I wanted to share something fun with you that I had the opportunity to do yesterday. You all know how much I love Loft, I mean let’s be honest over half my closet is Loft but yesterday I had the chance to actually go into Loft at the Altamonte Mall and try on some of their new fun pieces for fall! Literally it was a dream come true to get to work with a brand I love so much! I had the honor of meeting some great girls and working with them last night to do a try on session, check it out on my IG stories @lifestyle_w_laramie! They were the sweetest people and so fun to work with! Literally so grateful I get opportunities to do things like this!

So now on to this look, of course it’s Loft! This is a suit I got for our Vegas trip a few weeks ago and wanted to share it with you! I have never tried Loft swimsuits before and I ordered 3 for this trip! I loved EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM! I was totally surprised but I really did love the fit and cut of each one and they were perfect for my trip and trips to come! Anyways this one is so fun with the lace up detail and the fun colors I couldn’t pass it up! I paired it with some hot pink sunnies from Loft as well and sandals from Old Navy to top it off! The whole look is under $50 as you all know I love a good deal and got everything one sale, I had my eye on this suit for a long time! Loft is just literally perfect for the everyday woman and I just absolutely love shopping with them! Make sure to check out their current sale which is 40% EVERYTHING!

As for everything else going on we are now into what I feel is my busiest time of year! I have some weddings I’m shooting in October and November. I’m planning my own wedding (I promise I will be writing a post about this soon). I have tons of blogger events to attend. Still work my 9-5 job and have a few trips lined up as well. Not to mention the holidays are coming! I mean really after Halloween is over you blink and it’s Christmas!

Again so thankful for all of you that take the time to read my blog and like my IG posts! I am so grateful for all of you! Hope you have a great week and I will see you next Wednesday! xoxo

Classic Casual Look

Hey guys! Hope you're having a great week so far! Quick life update for you I'm gearing up for a busy fall. We are headed to Vegas this month, possibly planning some beach trips for September, and I'm boarding my first cruise ship in October. I have weddings booked, wedding planning for my own big day, and starting to plan for the holidays, I seriously need more time in a day, anyone else? 

Anyways...I've got a classic Laramie look for y'all today. When it's not boiling outside a look like this is pretty much my go to. I love everything girly and dressy don't get me wrong but I'm a jeans and t-shirt girl through and through. Old Navy has always had some of my favorite jeans and I love a good distressed pair of denim! Paired with a fun t-shirt with some embroidery from Loft and fun flats (again from Old Navy) add some sunnies and I'm good to go anywhere. This look in total is under $50, you know I love me a sale!!! I hope you love this look!

Let me know what you would like to see next on the blog? Do you want to see some beauty products? Transitional pieces going into fall from summer? Let me know!

 

The Perfect Shoe...For Everyone with Shoes of Prey

Ya'll know I love a good pair of shoes! It's no secret that my closet is filled with every kind of shoes and no lie the line from the movie, In Her Shoes about how clothes don't always look good but shoes always fit is everything! I will never turn away from shoes! Growing up however I always hated my feet, I have a wide foot and finding shoes was a struggle when I was a kid. Even to this day in most brands I have to size up a half size to make up for my wide foot. So I must admit when I saw the range of sizes and widths from Shoes of Prey I had heart eyes!

Shoes of Prey allows you to design and personalize your own shoes! Really, how cool is that?! Like I mentioned they offer extended shoe sizes, US 2-15 and in narrow, wide, and extra wide widths in most styles! I created a super girly pair of heels in the style Ives 70 designed with White Nappa Leather and Rose Gold Metallic Leather, they are what dreams are made of! I just love that you are in charge of every detail in your custom made shoes! They are also so comfortable and beautifully made and packaged! The box, the wrapping, every detail is stunning!  Want your own pair of custom shoes? Click here to check out Shoes of Prey plus I have a coupon code (LARAMIE) for free custom inscription in your new shoes, I put the name of my blog as my inscription in my custom beauties!
